I need my license, what course do I need to take?

You need to take the Basic Rider Course (BRC) if your experience is from little to none and you have not ridden consistently over the last year or more.

You need the 3 Wheel Basic Rider Course (3WBRC) if you are only wanting a license for the 3 wheel variety. This endorsement comes with a restriction to only ride a 3 wheeled bike.

You may need only to take the Intermediate Rider Course (IRC) if you have been consistently riding on a street motorcycle for years and have pretty much mastered the basic skills already. There is a skill evaluation that must be passed in order to continue on with the course.

Where are the courses located?

We have multiple locations: Lewisville, Mesquite, and Fort Worth.

What is the Basic Rider Course?

A two day course based on a 14 hour curriculum - approximately 4 hrs devoted to classroom, followed by 10 hrs dedicated to the range. There is a pre-course assignment called an eCourse that is required to be completed before the beginning of class. It is about 3 hrs of online videos and questions. The first day is approximately 4 hrs in the classroom followed by 4 hrs at the range. The second day is spent only at the range.

What am I required to bring with me to the course?

You will need to bring pants, Long-sleeved shirt, over-the-ankle footwear (can't be made of canvas material per DPS), sunglasses or eyeglasses for eye protection, and a valid drivers license or learners permit.

After taking the licensing course, will I be tested again at the DMV?

For 18 and older folks - no. For minors - yes. For the full requirement for minors, please visit the DPS website for those details.

I am under 18, what is required?

Minors must have a legal guardian accompany them to the beginning of the class to sign a minor waiver form or having the minor waiver form noterized. All students must bring a valid learners permit or license with them.

No refunds will be issued - once you sign up for class, we have already incurred cost of insurance, eCourse, processing, and database fees.  There are no refunds or reduced fees for missing ANY part of your class.  Coaches are paid whether you show up or not. 

What if I do not show up for class?

You will have to pay full price to reschedule. No refunds will be issued.

What if I do not pass/finish my course?

Most people that take the class are successful the first time aroundBut sometimes, individuals are unable to successfully complete the class.  If it is determined by the RiderCoach that you are a danger to yourself or others, you will be dismissed from the course.  You may also be dismissed if your lack of progress impedes or interferes with the class.  Please be aware that the course is strenuous and physically demanding and you may be dismissed if your condition adversely affects your performance.

Should you fail the written or skills test, the RiderCoach has the discretion as to whether you can retest or not.  If it is determined that you are a danger to yourself or others, you will NOT be permitted to retest.  If you are not eligible to retest, you will be asked to contact the office during normal business hours for the next steps.  Some people just need some remedial training, others may need to take the entire course again.  Cost will vary based on what is needed.  Hint: if you are nice to us, we will be nice to you!  We want happy, safe motorcyclists.
